I'll be visiting Vancouver with my husband next weekend. We'll have a car and are willing to drive out of Vancouver proper for good food.
We're looking for places that offer things that we can't get in Seattle. We've heard Vij's is good. I've heard over and over and over again how much better dim sum is in Vancouver, so I'm looking for recommendations for specific places (carts are a plus, but not a necessity.)
Also looking for the best bakeries, chocolatiers (a local chocolatier said that there's someplace that makes a lilac or violet cream chocolate that's really good), and gelato.
We'll be hanging out with someone who likes foie gras and other really rich foods, so if there are places that do those particularly well, we'd appreciate recommendations.
Thanks in advance.
